A Coup in Bolivia?

Listen to ¿Pero Por Qué? podcast for in-depth Latin American news, politics and history in English.

This discussion, about the controversial ousting of Evo Morales from the Bolivian presidency in late 2019, was originally planned as the first episode of ¿Pero Por Qué? podcast, but then 2020 happened.

There have been a lot of new developments in Bolivia since then, so we recap the whole story, as well as talking about how the interim government is confronting the coronavirus pandemic.
